The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Carnegie Mellon University is accepting applications from candidates in all areas of ECE for tenure-, research-, and teaching-track positions at all ranks for our Pittsburgh campus. We have particular interest in candidates who focus on cyberphysical systems, ubiquitous computing, energy systems and digital storage systems.
Our ECE department and College of Engineering are ranked among the top programs in the United States, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We are an extremely collaborative department with ties to several multidisciplinary institutes and centers. We collaborate with colleagues around the world through a number of research and educational programs. We have world-class experimental and computing infrastructure, including state-of-the-art nanofabrication facilities.
Our mission is to be a creative driving force of the highest scholarly and entrepreneurial quality that will inspire and educate engineers to solve important societal challenges. The foundation of our collaborative research is based on a strong practice of inclusion. We take pride and active steps in considering a diverse applicant pool in terms of gender, race, veteran status, and disability. Carnegie Mellon University further seeks to meet the needs of dual-career couples and is a member of the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) that assists with dual-career searches.
For all tracks, we are seeking individuals who hold a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline and have demonstrated commitment to our core values: creativity, quality, innovation, and engineering solutions.
Tenure-track faculty carry a moderate teaching load that allows time for quality research and close involvement with students. We expect Tenure-track faculty to establish and grow a strong research program, contribute to our teaching mission, and demonstrate a passion for mentoring and advising students.
Research-track faculty are not required to teach but do so when of clear benefit to the faculty and the department. Research-track faculty are compensated for both teaching and advising Ph.D. students. These faculty members primarily focus on developing leadership within one or more areas of research, forming research collaborations, and supervising of Ph.D. students.
Teaching-track faculty typically focus exclusively on teaching and service but may conduct research as well. We rely on Teaching-track faculty to help strengthen our undergraduate education and mentoring mission. Areas of particular interest for teaching track positions in Pittsburgh are: digital system design, FPGAs, C and assembly programming, operating systems, computer architecture, cyber-physical and embedded systems.
